Matchbox storage box - ** My Little Shoebox Enchanted Garden **

A quick little project to share today , 
made easy only because it is an Accucut die cut ,
all thanks to a generous crafty friend - Flora Tan
she let me cut up a storm for a coupla hours earlier this week . 
( Do check out her blog which is still work in progress - it will be filled 
with great , practical tips for crafters online .) 

 Also got to try out Tim Holtz's rosette die - I've used one here -
not  completely folded out 'cos the box isn't very big. 
These boxes are quite deep and great for storing  my MLSB Rolled flowers. 

I also used Eyelet Outlet's mushroom and stitched flower brads for the box handles 
and Butterfly ribbon in Fall colors.

I don't always notice singing birds around my bouganvillea but that evening 
as I was taking pics of my matchboxes here ,
 I couldnt help noticing them for the first time 
 and tried snapping at them ( with the DSLR only ! ;) 
I have no idea what kind of birds these are - 
if anyone would tell me I'd be happy to find out ! lol .
